Hemsky, that's an interesting one. He's on a very affordable salary, and superbly talented... But isn't he more of a playmaker than an actual goal scorer? I feel like we'd be better off landing another player that can put it in the net. Of course, if Hemsky is being sold off, there's no way I wouldn't want Sather to put in a bid.

That's a scary 1st line though... If Gaborik and Hemsky are making up 2/3rds of our main offensive line, we're going to have to learn to deal with injuries hurting the team.
He certainly is a playmaker. I'd say one of the best in the game right now. His vision is elite. That's a good point about injuries, but boy...That line can be equally scary if they stay healthy.

Hemsky-Richards-Gaborik. I think Hemsky can make Richards a 30 goal guy-- easy.

However, you can have Hemsky play with Callahan if you want to spread the talent. Callahan likes to shoot, and Hemsky can set him up.
